Product Description

This Formax Cut-True 29A Electric Programmable Guillotine Cutter accurately cuts paper stacks up to 3.15" high and up to 20.5" wide. Its user-friendly features include a touchscreen LCD control panel, automatically-adjusting back gauge, the ability to program up to 100 jobs/100 cuts, a LED Cutting Line which shows exactly where the blade will cut, an infrared light beam safety curtain that provides safety and convenience as it shuts down operation if the light plane is interrupted, and a hardened steel blade for crisp, accurate cuts, every time.
The Cut-True 29A has a cutting accuracy of 0.1mm on paper stacks up to 8mm. This electric cutter features a special anti-friction surface with optional wide side tables, making it easier for operators to maneuver large paper stock. A false clamp is included to minimize the risk of marking sensitive paper stock or perfect bound books. Plus, the clamp can be removed to decrease the minimum cut length, and is easily stored within the machine. The Cut-True 29A uses an electric drive to operate the paper clamp and blade carrier. The Cut-True 29A is ideal for transforming large sheets into brochures, invitations and more.

Installing Safety Curtains. With the cutter in positions, install the safety curtains. Begin by removing the screws on the safety curtains. Next, cut the zip tie holding the yellow connection cable in place on the front of the machine. With the covers off, guide the yellow cable to the connector of the safety curtain and screw the cable into the connector on top of the sensor. With the cable screwed in, slide the sensor bar up and hand tighten the knot to hold in position. Unscrew the four connecting bolts on the side of the cutter and place the safety curtain into position using the screws that were removed. Repeat installation steps on the opposite side. With the safety curtains in position, check to be sure they're properly aligned and working. To test, place your hands between the sensors you should see a red light go on and off. If the curtains are in place correctly you should hear a click each time you place your hands between the sensors. If the sensor light does not go on and there is no click adjust the sensor bars up or down until they are align properly. When the sensors are correctly set up fasten each of the knots securely to ensure that the sensors will not move. Place the safety curtain covers back into position and carefully screw them back into place.
